On Soundcloud, Belgian quartet Felix Pallas describe themselves as ‘alien synth pop’, and there’s certainly something other-worldly about new cut ‘Similarities’.
The track’s bubbling synths and wobbly, ever-changing falsetto struggle to fit into an existing world, so make one all of their own, with no thoughts as to genre constraints or boundaries.
There’s hints of Metronomy and Wild Beasts in the vocal delivery here, but the track’s chorus bursts out with untameable energy that hints at something altogether more anthemic.
The band are to set out on a tour of European festivals across the summer, and hazy evenings in packed tents will see them in their element, there’s no doubt.
Listen to ‘Similarities’ below.
